North Channel Library Closed on Fourth of July

fireworksDon't forget, all of the Harris County Library branches will be closed this Thursday, July 4th for Independence Day. The library will resume normal hours on Friday, July 5th.  But don't worry, you can always access your account or check out eBooks or eAudio online 24 hours a day, 365 days a year right here on the Harris County Library website.  Have a safe holiday and we'll see you on the fifth!

Sign Up For Our Summer Reading Program!

Summer Reading sign upHave you had a chance to sign up for our Summer Reading Program yet?  Don't worry, you still have time.  Our Summer Reading Program runs until August 10. You can sign up online on our home page or come to the library where we will be happy to help you get signed up!  We offer programs for everyone in the family, from babies to adults.  And don't forget about all of the fun programs you can attend this summer!  We can't wait to see you.  Happy reading!

Renew Materials @ Your Library!

Remember to renew the books and DVD's you check-out to avoid possible fines. You can phone 713-747-4763 to use our  automated phone renewal or you can go to our website:   For these two services, your library card barcode number and pin are required. You can also call us direct at the North Channel Library to renew materials  if you know your barcode number, but have forgotten your pin number: 281-457-1631  The only time we cannot renew  an item is if another customer is waiting to use it. Another helpful service is that you can ask for more time, even when you are at the Library checking materials out for the first time! So ask us for extra time the next time you check-out--especially if you are going on a long vacation this summer!
